SPOKANE, Wash. - Whitworth University will play Chapman University on Saturday in the first round of the NCAA Division III men's soccer tournament in a four-team grouping at University of California at Santa Cruz.

Chapman comes into the tournament with a record of 11-4-2. The Panthers picked up one of three spots in the tournament reserved for independent participants.

UC Santa Cruz (13-4-2), another of the independents, will host Claremont-Mudd-Scripps (11-7-2) in the other first round match up. CMS surprised many by winning the SCIAC tournament as a #4 seed.

The times of the first (Saturday) and second (Sunday) round games are still to be announced.
